OWOP

I know what you're thinking. What is this OWOP thing? The new Hansen song, perhaps? No, it's Tilly's One Week, One Pattern challenge. The idea is to wear different versions of the same pattern every day for a week. I chose vintage Butterick 9405, aka the best three bucks I ever spent.



The envelope may not look like much but view D is my perfect blouse. I mean, it has a peter pan collar.

OWOP Day one


My latest version is made from some quilting cotton that was on the sale table at Spotlight for $4/m. It has little nests and birds on it. I used some buttons from an op shop.

For day one of OWOP I wore it with a self-drafted skirt (and by self-drafted I mean, I took a rectangle, pleated it and added a waistband), vintage bakelite bangles and saddle shoes and some random tights.
